The Hammer Head was scratched at Winton yesterday because his stablemate Carbonista kicked him on a leg. Carbonista ran third in a maiden race.

Their trainer, Stephen Blair-Edie will soon be training maiden galloper Poach The Cash. The 5-year-old D'Cash gelding has bagged a second and two fourths from eight starts in the North Island. He was trained by Wayne Larsen, of Pukekohe.

An unraced 4-year-old brother to King Prawn is also in work with Blair-Edie.

Invercargill Cup winner Gargamel is having a brief spell.

Wet-tracker Fiesty Chick was turned out, co-trainer Jo Gordon said.

Fiesty Chick needed rain-affected tracks to show her best. With warm temperatures and the summer looming, tracks are likely to firm up soon.

The track at Winton yesterday went from a Dead 4 to a Good 3 after race 5.

''It looks like the wet tracks have come to an end,'' Gordon said.
